Stop network problems, start CIC say the residents     

The construction of a Community Information Center (CIC) has been completed since last year but it has not started its functions. When the CIC starts, the village residents can avail IT enabled services such as photo copy, printing, internet etc. “Even Security Clearance can be acquired through internet,” the Gup added. However nothing has been done so far since its construction. Meanwhile residents have put the blame on the advent of the solar connections for the disturbance in fixed line and mobile connections. The gewog people said earlier there were no such problems when connections were made through the Towers. Gup Chempa Dorji of the gewog said the budget is planned in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. “Completion of tower and CIC would help to address these inconveniences,” the Gup said. (Tashi Deki)

The Bongo Gup, Tashi Dorji said that the villagers will be now given saplings of oranges and seedling of various crops and vegetables to cultivate. The barren land was cleared, burnt and left uncultivated for two to three years to regain fertility.                  (Sonam Choden)
